Historic Route 66 winds around, and through, Kingman, AZ, and is named "Andy Devine Blvd." after the famous actor, and native son of Kingman, who's Hollywood career spanned over 4 decades.  There are many historical remnants along the "Mother Road" as it winds through Kingman, and the city has put up many signs and historical markers to promote it's connection to the old road.  More importantly, for "foodies" like me, there are several "Route 66-theme" restaurants located in town, including Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner, located on the east side of town, near downtown Kingman.

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  Mr. D's Route 66 Diner is located on Andy Devine Blvd, which is the routing of historic Route 66 through Kingman.  Armando's Pizza, which is owned by the same owner, is co-located in the same building.  There are a few restored classic cars parked in front, and classic car shows occasionally happen in the restaurant's spacious parking lot.

It's just after 10 o'clock on Wednesday morning, September 05, 2018, and I'm in the mood for a classic Route 66 breakfast.

Photo:  The view of the main dining room as you enter the door.  The counter to the right is "L-shaped," and wraps around the corner.  I love the white/black classic tile, and the Wurlitzer jukebox that was stocked with classic music, albeit on CDs rather than vinyl.

Photo:  The view of the other leg of the "L-shaped" counter.  As you can seen the decor is chintzy, "Route 66, circa 2018."  I love the gumball machines set up to look like classic gas pumps, and the 7-foot tall likeness of Elvis.  The sign advises "Please Wait to be Seated," but in customary fashion, I sat myself at the counter.  Note the sign advertises a grape shake, which is a variety of shake that I've never heard of before.

Photo:  One of the many classic displays in the dining room.

Photo:  My amazing friendly server, Faith, smiles as I take her photo as she works behind the counter.  Besides classic drink posters, there are many car posters, Route 66 posters, and posters from 1950's/1960's music concerts.

Photo:  A portion of the breakfast menu, which is unusual as it's pink, and sort of round in shape.  Loose leaf binding is always a nice touch so the menu can lay flat.  I settled on the "Two Eggs Any Style" for $5.99, and for a dollar more, added two slices of bacon.  Such a great deal!

Photo:  Mr. D'z and co-located Armando's Pizza share a large dining room, that offers overflow dining and is much more spacious and quieter.

Photo:  As I was waiting for my order to arrive, I had time to wander into Armando's Pizza and take a photo of the main dining room.  Note the commercial pizza oven to the left of the photo.  Like Mr. D'z, Armando's sells Route 66 souvenirs and is decorated accordingly.

Photo:  The three servers on duty pick up orders from the window to the kitchen, and enter the kitchen through the swinging doors to the left of the photo.

Photo:  Before my order arrived, I asked my friendly server, Faith, to snap of photo of me, standing by the giant Elvis mannequin.

Photo:  Meet my amazingly friendly server, Faith, who strikes a classic "diner pose" for my camera.  Faith was very enthusiastic about my photo taking, my many questions, and delivered my breakfast to me with a big smile.  Quite a gal!

Photo:  Thanks, Faith, for snapping my photo as I get ready to enjoy a classic, "Route 66" breakfast.

Photo:  I chose the "Two Eggs any Style," which came with hash brown potatoes and toast, and for an extra dollar, added two strips of bacon.  This breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious!  There is nothing that I love more than classic diner faire for breakfast, and at $6.95 plus tax, it was a real bargain.

At Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner, you get to enjoy great food, friendly service, and the essence of historic Route 66.  You don't even have to make the trip to Las Vegas is you want your photo taken with Elvis!  If you're in the mood for a delicious Route 66 meal, Mr. D's Route 66 Diner should be on list...
